Currently the RMLC consists of 16 teams encompassing five Rocky Mountain states; Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. It is divided into two divisions, Division I and Division II. Division II is separated further by region; East and West.
The RMLC, first known as the RMLA, was formed in 1976 with founding members Colorado State University, University of Colorado, Regis University, Air Force Academy, University of Denver, and Colorado School of Mines. In 1997 the Conference changed names to the, Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Lacrosse League (RMILL) and went to a club-only league, and under the governing body of USLacrosse, as a member of the US Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associates (USLIA), which reorganized into Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA) in 2006.
